Fall In The Faerie Glade


Fall In The Faerie Glade

Walking through an Eastern Sierra forest on a Fall afternoon my wife and I discovered this untrammeled glade, where yellow leaves were sprinkled like pixie dust on the long grass. I set the extension arm on my tripod so my Nikon D90 was 8 inches above...

Antelope Thunder


Antelope Thunder

We made our way up to Buffalo Point on Antelope Island in Utah. We arrived on Friday afternoon and truth to tell I was ready to go home, actually I didn't want to come. The weather forecast was miserable and it was accurate. Friday afternoon upon our...

The New Pushes Out The Old


The New Pushes Out The Old

Spring in Southern California doesn't happen all at once. The weather changes, but there are so many microclimates that wildflowers can bloom and fade in one place before they start in another. I spotted this little patch of California Poppies off...

Immortal


Immortal

The sound of thunder rings across the air but this is no storm clouds to be seen. Instead, a stunning Saturday morning presents and I can't help but notice as I make my way up the road the sounds of rushing water booming throughout the forest. The...

Ocean Dreams


Ocean Dreams

I've been shooting this beach at Sunset Cliffs for the last few years and I'm always inspired by the rock formations in the foreground for many compositions. This shot was taken at low tide conditions and just before sunset starburst show up between...

This photograph was taken at Cullinan Ranch, a new water wetlands area in the San Francisco Bay Area. This area is part of the Pacific Flyway and while I was out to photograph birds, these ladybugs got my attention. I sat on the ground to get the...

Spring Wildflowers: Rowena Crest


Spring Wildflowers:  Rowena Crest

This photo was taken from ground level to capture the flowers and the Columbia River background. I used a Nikon D 7100, Nikkor Zoom lens (18-200 mm.), and a Tiffen Circular Polarizer. The ISO was 100, F/18, 1/3rd second exposure, and a Focal Length...

The fog rolling off the neighboring field in the morning light was so pretty.

Beyond The Sun


Beyond The Sun

"Beyond the Sun:" These beautiful tall aspens seemed to reach for the sky, even beyond the low-angled sun, and if you look closely, a few of their delicate yellow leaves were captured mid-fall as even the gentlest breeze would launch them from their...

On The Floor Of The Forest


On The Floor Of The Forest

Sometimes when out photographing the fall aspen changes in the Colorado mountains, it is a good idea to look down at the forest floor and not just up at the trees. It is there that a fallen leaf and a few small plants can provide a contrast to the...

The Milky Way reflects in a puddle of water nearly three times saltier than the ocean.

End Of Eternity


End Of Eternity

The Milky Way arches over exotic calcium carbonate "tufa" rock formations, while reflecting in water nearly three times saltier then the sea. The tufa formations formed when the lake was higher, as calcium-rich spring water reached the alkaline...

Spring brings temporary snow melt ponds in Yosemite's High Sierra, and storm clouds create dramatic reflections in them.

Springwater
